Everton player on his ‘complicated’ season, surrounded himself with ‘those who…

first_imgThe defender has spoken to the local press on his first day of training, and most of the questions were about his fitness situation, since he’s missed a big part of the season due to injuries.“They made me learn a lot. Now I don’t want to think about that anymore, I want to live in the present and learn from my colleagues and coaches,” said Yerry Mina (via El Espectador).“I always surround myself with my family, my future wife and those who love me, because after living those pleasant moments like the World Cup, then getting injured at Everton was complicated. I want to think about the present, every day I’m stronger.”With the player being one of the first to get to Colombia’s training camp, he says the reason for that is that he wants to work hard and be in great form for when the time comes.“I’m thinking every day to improve and do things in the best way, that’s why I’m here from minute zero. When it’s time for me to go to Everton, I’ll be at the top too, because I want to work and demonstrate what I am.”That sounds like the right attitude to have.Signed from Barcelona in a €30m deal last summer, Yerry Mina has only managed to make 15 appearances for Everton. He started most of the games when fit, but missed over 25 matches while injured or working to get fit.Everton will be hoping he has a Copa America to match his World Cup, just without the injury issues which Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
